To support the transition to live IP production, Tektronix is showcasing Prism to help transitioning media companies who wish to preserve existing investments. Offering insights into hybrid SDI/IP production workflow issues, it fosters collaboration between IT experts and broadcast engineers, said the company.
As a software-defined platform, Prism can accommodate a range of applications and will be updated as new technologies and standards emerge.
Alongside Prism, the SPG8000A master sync and PTP grandmaster clock generator is being showcased. Claimed by Tektronix to be the first in the industry, it offers an optional, software-only field upgrade to add IEEE 1588 support for both traditional SDI-based and IP-based media infrastructures.
Charlie Dunn, general manager, video product line, Tektronix, said: “Tektronix has the experience, tools and applications to carry our customers into the future as they embrace a range of exciting new and emerging technologies.
“We encourage everyone in the industry who is facing these transitions to stop by our stand during IBC to see our latest solutions for managing the transition to IP infrastructures or monitoring and optimising 4K, HDR and ABR content.”
